Abstract:#MeToo is a movement which started in 2006 and was further developed in 2017. This movement aims to raise awareness for the magnitude of sexual harassment. This movement was mainly present on Twitter last year, but has been covered on the news as well. Via tweets, users would state that sexual harassment had happened to them, by the use of a hashtag: #MeToo. During this project, there has been looked at how all these tweets and all this information could be summarized in a data visualization. Overall users were very positive about the data visualization and only found some minor flaws that could easily be resolve. This project could be turned into a framework as long as a new topic complies with the following requirements: it should be a sensitive and underestimated topic, a topic that is happening on social media, and a topic for which news articles are available. Next to that, there should be looked at the story and other ethical implications for different topics.
